:(, I thought your suggestions weren't serious. I am sympathetic to 
users who want short command names but I would rather the default 
package come with a long obtuse name and allow users to alias/symlink 
their own preferred name rather than vice-versa.

My reasoning is that users who will never use the `rico' tool will not 
take the take time to alias it to something better, whereas people who 
do care will alias it to something reasonable.
